SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 20, 2012

A new week has begun, and as such we have a new round of news to recap in the Evening Wrap-up. Today it was revealed that Apple has become the most valuable public company in history which, while pretty monumental, wasn't entirely unexpected. The jury for the Apple vs. Samsung patent suit is set to begin deliberation tomorrow, but before they do, Apple and Samsung's CEOs will be conversing over the phone, despite the fact that settlement talks between the two companies apparently didn't go anywhere.

As Thursday winds down, we're finding that we've got a lot of news to recap. Today Samsung used the MERL touchscreen table to show that Apple doesn't have much of a claim, before resting its case and asking the Judge to award it $421.8 million in the suit. Later in the day, we caught word that Judge Lucy Koh had asked Apple's counsel if they were smoking crack when they presented an extremely long document filled with witnesses they wanted to call for rebuttals. Yes, that really happened.

Sony: no PS Vita price cut in 2012

With the PS Vita currently struggling to find a significant audience, many people think that a price cut could help out a lot.

Unfortunately, the PS Vita won't be seeing such a price cut anytime this year.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified isn't the only console spin-off that will be exclusive to the PS Vita, as Sony's Gamescom press conference also treated us to the announcement of Killzone: Mercenary.

This marks the first time in Killzone history that you'll be working alongside the Helghast (at least sometimes), so get excited Vita owners.

Sony executives stand up for struggling PS Vita

Sony executives stand up for struggling PS Vita

It isn't exactly a secret that the PlayStation Vita has been struggling ever since it launched earlier this year. Though it's hard to get exact numbers out of Sony, weekly sales charts from Japan and monthly sales charts from NPD here in America don't paint a pretty picture - the Vita keeps slipping while the Nintendo 3DS is posting some sky-high numbers on occasion. It's kind of funny in a way, seeing as how the 3DS had the exact same problem as the Vita after its own launch, but that's another discussion for another time.
